DNA Creative Communications (DNA), in collaboration with the Community Foundation of Greenville, the Hollingsworth Funds, Inc, and United Way of Greenville County, hosted a session, “Web Fusion 2.0: Finding Your Web Future,” as a part of their “Shine the Light on Your Nonprofit” educational series on July 25th at the Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center.

Over 60 staff members of nonprofit organizations across the Upstate attended the seminar which focused on social media tactics to help improve nonprofits’ online communications. The session addressed the many different ways to utilize social media platforms in order to maintain a successful online presence.  “Web Fusion 2.0” featured special presentations by Melanie Mathos and Chad Norman, co-authors of the book, 101 Social Media Tactics for Nonprofits and Anne Decabooter, owner at Booter, Inc.

“Having a nonprofit specific session on social media and digital media helped me focus how we should be utilizing these methods to increase awareness of our mission and even fundraise for our programs,” said Beth Jamieson, community resource director at Greenville First Steps.

The “Shine the Light on Your Nonprofit” series was originally developed in 2010 as a resource to help the widespread communications needs among the nonprofit community.
